This is figurative of the devastation taking place in Texas. Rogues.

Saw it on the ABC Infotainment “News” last night. That smoke looked precisely like what it is: black poison.

Was watching the last of the King Charles’s coronation, and when I saw Camilla, my gut reaction was “it should have been Diana.”

Camilla was the big change in this gig. She’s the first divorcee to become Queen. Charles is just another dude in a long line of men. Queen Elizabeth was the 3rd woman.

Same down here, Ms. Benny. Diana would have been a gorgeous queen. Camilla—blech! just sitting down at my aging desktop to get the latest Birdie scoop. 🙂 Hubster and I walked the grounds of Westminster Abbey back over 20 years ago when we did a bike (motorcycle) run through the German/Austrian Alps. I’m not exaggerating which I write this, but I could smell the history–literally. We sure don’t have that here.

I saw this in the LA Daily:

Multiple people were shot at an outlet mall in the Dallas suburb of Allen, Texas, on Saturday, sending hundreds of shoppers fleeing in panic in the latest gun violence to strike the country.

Calls about shots being fired came in about 3:40 p.m. from the Allen Premium Outlets. A dispatcher with Allen police confirmed the department was investigating a shooting but couldn’t say more.

WFAA-TV reported that police on the scene said there were multiple victims, including children.

Rep. Keith Self, who represents the area that includes the mall, said he had confirmed with law enforcement that the shooter is dead, and that there was no one else involved in the attack.

Their conditions were not immediately known, but WFAA reported that the Collin County Sheriff said the shooter is dead.

A crowd of hundreds of people who had been shopping stood outside, across the street from the mall, Saturday evening. Officers circulated among them asking if anyone had seen what happened.

This would be about 25 miles north of Dallas on US 75. This is getting old.

Got the NYT home page up this am. Steeling my cynical self to read about the shootings. We saw the first reports come in right after the running of the Derby. Man, last night I was talking to a good pal who is very conservative ‘cept she’s no X-tian Fundie. She told me bad stuff is building internationally, and one of the things she was referring to is climate crisis. The other is nuclear war. She’s a grandma. Believe me, folks in this country know, and they’re sick of the for-profit media.

Abbott went to the GQP no1 hit (below). i wonder if maybe making it mandatory for all news outlets to show the carnage and or aftermath of a mass shooting on TV. maybe the gaping wounds and body parts strewn everywhere espically with children might force the congresscritters into action. The picters and video that was shown on the nightly news during Vietnam was a factor of getting us out. America got sick of it and forced congress to act. Maybe the GQP should be made to walk thru every mass shooting and see the carnage like the Germans were made to do at Auschwitz. The 2A is outdated in its current form and needs a serious rewrite.
